Virgil Abloh's first Louis Vuitton show: Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kanye West, Kylie Jenner and more stars attend

Virgil Abloh's A-list pals stepped out on Thursday to attend his first-ever show as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton's menswear line.

Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West, Rihanna, Kylie Jenner and boyfriend Travis Scott, Rita Ora, Chadwick Boseman, Bella Hadid and Naomi Campbell were among the major names that sat front row at the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring/Summer 2019 show, which was part of Paris Fashion Week and took place at the Jardin du Palais-Royal.

Also on-hand for the highly-anticipated show were A$AP Rocky, Jordyn Woods and Alexander Skarsgard, along with a slew of major names in the fashion world.

West and longtime pal Abloh shared a tender moment when the designer walked the runway at the end of his debut show, which was captured by fellow guests. The two stars hugged for a prolonged period of time as they both appeared to wipe tears of happiness away from their eyes and Kardashian consoled West from behind.

Abloh was appointed artistic director of the French luxury brand's menswear leg back in March, just a week after Kim Jones announced his exit from the fashion house.

"I feel elated," he said when the announcement was made. "This opportunity to think through what the next chapter of design and luxury will mean at a brand that represents the pinnacle of luxury was always a goal in my wildest dreams. And to show a younger generation that there is no one way anyone in this kind of position has to look is a fantastically modern spirit in which to start."
